Mulan watches as the shadow travels down her sundial that isn't a sundial. When Aurora starts crying in her sleep, Snow wakes her and reassures her that it was just a dream. Aurora says the dream was the same as last time. "I was in this room. This-this red room. It was bright. Blood red curtains. There were no windows or doors, so it didn't make sense. I couldn't get in or out. I was trapped. The curtains -- they were on fire. It was horrible. Snow lays her hands on Aurora's arm and whispers that it's okay. Aurora: "I was hunched in a corner, and I looked over into the other corner. In the shadows, there was someone else, there. I could just see his eyes. He was looking right at me." Taking the princess's face in her hand, Snow gently reminds her that it's okay. She promises the nightmares will pass, and that she'll sit with Aurora until she falls back to sleep. "Who else do I have to take care of?" Oh, poor Snow.
CGIsland. Inside the castle which is no cave at all, Hook exposits about the treasure. Emma has no idea how long the sleeping powder will last, so she'd like Hook to stop fondling the few gold items that aren't computer generated and start looking for the compass. We jump sideways and back to...
Portland. Emma finds the storage locker, takes out a backpack full of watches, walks right past two cops, and smiles.
CGIsland. When Hook wonders how much treasure they could carry down the beanstalk, Emma gives him a dirty look. When she comes across a human sized skeleton, Hook explains it's that of Jack the Giant Killer. His sword bears his name, and lies right next to him. Walking backwards, Hook is about to stumble over a tripwire, so Emma grabs him. Hook smiles as he wraps his arms around her. "It's about bloody time." Emma struggles free and shows him the trip wire, which is rigged to a cage up above. Hook: "Well that's a plausible excuse for grabbing me, but next time, don't stand on ceremony." Emma is not unaffected, but she puts up a brave front and insists they get down to business.
Portland. Night. Emma runs to Neal, who is waiting in the bug. He shows her the watches and figures they can get $20,000, easy. He takes one of the watches, puts it on her wrist and tells her to meet him at the parking structure near the tracks at nine o'clock, sharp. He kisses her and says, "Tallahassee, baby. We're almost home." As she watches him walk away, Emma says, "Home."
As Neal walks through a sudden fog or steam attack (seriously, what is that?) he realizes he's being trailed, so he starts to run. It's August who is following him. Hi August! It's so nice to see you in the flesh. August catches up with Neal in Exposition Alley. He pulls the the thief down from the fence he's scaling, and throws him to the ground. Neal thinks August is a cop, so our boy sets him straight. "It's not like that. You want to protect Emma? Come with me." Neal demands to know how he knows Emma. August introduces himself, and says it's a long story, "...but trust me, you want to hear it." Commercial.
